The significance of the Kyle Rittenhouse verdict - The Hot Mess Press

The year 2020 was full of chaos. Not only did we deal with a global pandemic, there was also a lot of violence around the country. As rioters and looters burned cities and caused mayhem, many small business owners were concerned about their property and livelihood. It got particularly bad in Kenosha, Wisconsin, in August of last year. This is where Kyle Rittenhouse gained his notoriety. He was villainized by the media as a white supremacist who killed innocent victims during a violent uproar after the shooting of Jacob Blake. Rittenhouse faced several different charges related to the shootings and the weapons involved. The trial, which just concluded in a not guilty verdict for all charges, painted a completely different story than what the mainstream media has been telling the public for the past 15 months. Consider the facts to better understand the importance of the case.

What really happened in Kenosha?

The mainstream media wants you to believe that Kyle Rittenhouse went to Kenosha looking for trouble. But this doesn’t seem true. Rittenhouse had family in Kenosha, so it’s a reasonable assumption that he was there to protect the interest of a community he was familiar with. Contrary to the media’s narrative, he did not cross the state line with an illegal weapon. The AR-15 that Kyle had was legally given to him by the gun owner. I try not to speculate and I don’t like to provide information without legitimate sources, but I’ve read some other interesting things about the case. Based on a picture taken earlier in the day, Kyle may have been in town to remove graffiti from a vandalized building. Other sources claim that Rittenhouse was actually in the area to help victims with medical aid.

Who were the victims?

Long before the legal trial, Rittenhouse was found guilty by the mainstream media. They would have had us all believe that this young white man went in with guns blazing to murder anyone who wasn’t the same race. But the victims, believe it or not, were also white. And, they were also violent men with criminal backgrounds. One of the men killed, Joseph Rosenbaum, was a convicted child sex offender. The other man killed was Anthony Huber. He swung on Rittenhouse with a skateboard before being shot. His background includes several domestic violence incidents. The other man who survived being shot in the arm, Gaige Grosskreutz, was a convicted felon with an illegal handgun. Videos show him pointing the weapon at Rittenhouse before he was shot.

So, what can we learn from the Kyle Rittenhouse verdict? First, and most importantly, I think this case shows the true intent of most mainstream media sources. They aren’t providing facts in an unbiased way. They are selling a narrative. Secondly, the ability to protect oneself from violence is an inherent American right. And lastly, the justice system can work effectively. In this case, the facts were presented to the jury and they ruled accordingly. The media uses racism as a talking point to divide people. And if you don’t look at the facts yourself, you can easily be misled into believing their lies. Now that this case is over, we should turn our attention to the Ghislaine Maxwell trial. It has the potential to expose some well-known people as being part of human trafficking operations. If we can get honest coverage of this case, the results may be shocking.
